Students should request that the College Board send AP scores to Villanova University (our code is 2959). AP scores are received electronically by the Registrar's Office and processed at the time of student enrollment. Credit is awarded according to each college's AP Credit policy.

Most AP scores for incoming freshmen reach Villanova by mid-July if they were ordered at the time the student sat for the AP exam. Scores requested directly from the College Board typically arrive within a week of the order. AP credits appear in the "Transfer Credit" area of the student record.

The instructor must submit a written or online "grade change" request, with the appropriate approvals. When an approved grade change is received by the Registrar's Office, the new grade is posted to the student's academic record. A student can view their grades online where a new grade will replace the original grade. The student will also receive an email that a grade change has been made.

"N" grades must be replaced by the instructor according to the following schedule:

Fall Semester

  • Students must submit all work to the instructor by the last Friday in January.
  • Grade changes must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the second Friday in February.

Spring Semester

  • Students must submit all work to the instructor by the last Friday in June.
  • Grade changes must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the second Friday in July.

Summer Sessions

  • New grade must be received by Registrar within thirty days after the end of the Summer Session.

Unless the dean authorizes an extension, an "N" that is not replaced before the deadline becomes an "NF" grade and is computed as an "F" in the GPA.

The University does not release grades to parents. The sharing of grades between parents and the student is a family matter. See our confidentiality policy or the FERPA policy.

However, if a student would like to allow their parents access to their records they may grant access
